Blueberry Margarita

Who doesn’t love a good margarita?  Well, if you’re reading this — you most likely came here to get this awesome margarita recipe, so I am pretty certain you are in the margarita loving crowd?  This Blueberry Margarita, is the best cocktail I have had in a while.  Certainly the best one I have made recently.  I planned to make these last summer.  Every time I thought about making them,  I ran out of time, I didn’t have one ingredient, something.  These needed to happen.  I told myself they would make a good patio drink.  But if you are in the Midwest or pretty much anywhere but the Southwest at this point, your patio has probably been a bit chilly and wet lately.  Spring needs to hurry up and SPRING.  Cue my oldest daughter’s 21st birthday.

 

This is her the night of her birthday in front of her party bus that held her and 45 of her closest friends. 😉 She whooped it up with them the night of her birthday and that weekend, I made her birthday dinner.  We have a tradition in our family that I make you whatever you want for your birthday dinner, main course, sides and dessert.  She chose Copy Cat Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana and French Silk Pie.

Before dinner though, we enjoyed these Blueberry Margaritas! They were a huge hit, and I was super glad I made a whole pitcher of them.  Even my hubby, who typically only drinks regular margaritas, loved them.

WARNING: They go down really easy.

But don’t most margaritas??

 I have to say –  I know people request to not have their glass rimmed with sugar or salt, but those people?  Have WAY more will power than I will ever have.   I would sooner not have the whole drink to give up that rim full of lickable salt or sugar!! Call me crazy!

I used crystalized sugar from my baking sprinkles — both clear and purple to rim to the lime doused edge of the glass.

Fill the glass with ice, drop in a few blueberries, and add a lime slice to the edge. Give the pitcher a stir and pour it in!

  1. These look so pretty & refreshing! What would you recommend as a substitute to make this non alcoholic? I know this would be a huge hit at my family BBQs!

  2. This Margarita looks not only delicious, but beautiful, too. I love when a cocktail is pretty, and this one fits the bill. Putting this one on my list for this summer entertaining. Thank you!

  3. Such an amazing look to this amazing Drink. Cant cant wait to grab a sip right away. Love to have this as my next Party Drink option. Perfect, colorful and refreshing.

  4. I have all the ingredients at home making this tonight for an early Cinco de Mayo celebration, cheers!

  5. I love a good margarita and this one look great! I’ve never had a blueberry one but that’s about to change!

  6. I love that this can be made with frozen blueberries – I always always have some on hand! And now I kind of want to keep lime simple syrup on hand all the time, too. Margarita summer, here I come!

  7. Thanks for the great idea! I made it according to the recipe, but it was wayyy too sweet for me. So I doubled the lime, added more tequila, and cut the sugar by 1/3 cup. Perfecto!

  8. We had our Cinco De Mayo party over the weekend, and I made two batches of these incredible blueberry margaritas. Everyone kept coming back for multiple refills. I followed the directions except for straining the mix because I used my Vitamix blender, which worked out perfectly! These are really easy to make up ahead of time or on the fly when the group is demanding a second batch ๐Ÿ™‚ This drink is going to be our new go-to for margaritas.
